Like A Bus .....

I mean wait ages and then get two at once!  No references please to the size of my behind, you naughty things.

Addicted To Stamps And More have an Anything Goes challenge this time around, which is perfect for what I made tonight.  

To be honest, I wasn't even sure this would make it to card stage when I started painting as I decided to use two of the most unruly colours possible - red and black - but with patience and a lot of muttering, I think it reached "acceptable" levels, and thus I set too with a craft knife and more mutterings.  Anyhoo, here is the end result:


Stamped image is part of an SCACD/Sylvia Zet image called "Loli's Dance"
Unfortunately she lost a couple of tiny curls in the cutting out process - sorry Sylvia
Painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers) (and yes, tonight they were distressing)
Papers are a mix of Penny Black and Basic Grey
That fabulous quote is a Penny Black stamp
Nestie classic circle die, scalloped circle die, and a Whimsy corner die

Hugs, Squirrel xx

PS.  Anyone else having issues with Blogger not posting when he should?
